Roger Nagel won the Republican nomination to replace the longtime Fulton County prosecutor.
The main issue in the race was whether the prosecutor should collect a full-time salary of more than $94,000 or work as a part-time prosecutor, being paid less than $53,000.
Mr. Nagel said he would devote himself full time to the prosecutor s office. Mr. Robinson said he could save the county almost $42,000 a year by maintaining his privatepractice and working as prosecutor part time. Prosecutor William Swigart decided not to run for re-election.
